Unfortunately, while they might have done some work to make it available
on other distributions, they have not taken the time to upload the package
to Debian.

This is an annoying habit for many of their projects and it might be a
part of the reason why many of their interesting projects do not really
take off.

$ apt search snapcraft

$ apt show lxd

E: No packages found

Same for Unity and many other things that I would have tried when they
marketed them.
